Agreed, back the blue! And I have so many bags of cure because I’ve had a bucket of isntacure for a while and I’m using that first before the bags included. The bucket makes it nice to make smaller batches and just reseal. Also makes it nice when I want to convert fresh into cured!
Snack Stick Question
I bought and planning to try to do some Excalibur Habanero Lime snack sticks.
I noticed that the Excalibur mix has citric acid in the ingredient list (which I’m sure is what gives it the lime taste).
Will I need to take precautions with this mix like you would if you using ECA?
(curing overnight or over mixing?)
I normally don’t use ECA in my sticks and let it cure overnight.
Or should I go straight to the smoker after mixing?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Gravity Storm no, if you do not use ECA in your mix you must hold over night even though the ingredients have citric acid in it. Im sure the citic acid that is in it is very minimal and probably not ecapsulated so no need to worry about over mixing either. Just do your process as you normally would
Thanks for the response!
